Here's an entertaining rant about visual arts in Seattle. I agree with some of what he says but, truthfully, I don't know as much about the arts scene in Seattle as I would like. So far, I've only been able to crack into the coffee shop/art boutique market. I hope to be able to show in some galleries before too long but who knows if I'll be able to crack that nut. Art communities are very cliquish (a word?) in general. You're either in or you're not. I'm not.
I did get a new show yesterday. It's in Queen Anne, a neighborhood I haven't shown in yet. I am now booked solid thru the first part of September.
